I thought they'd shot all the rescue dogs over there? Or was that just an isolated incident?
That was in NSW, Stret, they're all mad bastards over there.
Same for me, very thankful to have had the fur balls who are good company and amusement
Mowing the lawn this morning and the blade got caught on something and has bent outwards.
I hate my life.
My Wife’s friend has just been diagnosed with Breast cancer for the 7th time.
The bastard just will not leave her alone, she always catches it early enough to beat it each time as because of her history she has very regular checks but of course each time the treatment does her in.
Cancer just needs to **** right off.
Not miserable at all but didnt know where to post this.
20 years ago today my lovely Nana died at the grand old age of 90.
Was a bigger world event going on the very next day as we had 9/11 but on a personal level was gutted as one would be.
As said earlier i am not sad at all but honestly cannot believe 20 years has whizzed by.
7th time?!!! Flipping heck!! She is definitely a Miracle Lady and Hero.
WE will bury Cancer one day.
It still hurts no matter how long ago it was and no matter what is going on in the world. It was personal to you. I remember when my Aunt passed away from Cancer 27th December, 2009, 3rd time she had it and it took her. Couldn't believe how Fast the 10 years went back in 2019. Still remember the day like it was yesterday.
The memories do not fade.
My sister and i were reminiscing and i said i can still see Nana sitting in the garden on her bench and every single person who walked past would always say hello, its like she knew the whole village. Miss things like cutting her lawn for her or getting coal in from outside bunker as buckets would be so heavy for her to lift.
7 times for fcks sakes that’s so not,fair. I hope she kicks it in the balls again
Jeeezuz, when we have a shit day over a stupid cold and are feeling sorry for ourselves we need to remember there are some having it 100 times worse.
Fingers crossed for the lady.
I'm an Arsenal fan, what gives. I have seen the highs and now I maybe seeing the Championship.
We’ve had a baby 7 weeks ago, I’m studying full time, wife is on maternity leave.
She was on a high wage before maternity leave so it feels like a big loss. We’ve been told we should try universal credit to soften the blow for abit. We’ve never claimed anything in our whole life, always worked full time until I started studying.
Found out we’re not eligible for it because I work part time and we have too much savings. This country is a joke, only looks after people who don’t want to work.
So couples with a baby who’s never worked a day in their whole lives, are probably much better off than us at the moment and that’s a joke.
Are you miserable because you can't claim anything or the fact folk who don't work can. Or is it both chief?
Both I suppose. It feels like the country doesn’t really look after hard working people
Same thing in the States. Bizarre system that really doesn't take care of the lower middle class, which is a majority of the population.
I was in a similar situation and managed to find a University that was 100% online. Managed to get both by undergraduate and graduate degrees there whilst still working full time to support my family.
Congratulations on the birth of your child. Wish you both all the happiness moving forwards.
Not sure if I've missed a thread of posts but does she not get 6 Months full Maternity pay?
You get statutory which isn't much unless your employer provides it.
I assumed it was by Law as we have it in place at our place.
I had a similar conversation last week about disability help. I'm entitled to absolutely nothing because of what I earn. Until my disability becomes so severe I have to stop working I don't qualify for mobility help like being eligible for a vehicle with a hoist to load and unload the wheelchair that I need at work but can't lift without help
Seems very odd since with my contributions I fund these benefits already for so many
That’s a complete joke. I’d say you are more than entitled to support especially when you’ve worked your whole life and contributed a great amount to society and tax. It’s not right at all.
What sort of message does that send? You either work full time and get what you’re paid, 4 weeks holiday a year or you can sit on your arse and the government will put food on your table, pay for your bills, mortgage, phone bills etc. It’s ridiculous.
Wow that’s amazing, you should be proud of yourself. I have no idea how you managed to work full time and get a degree at the same time! Plus looking after your family. Incredible, well done.
